Strangers in Town: Film Screening/Discussion with Director

Join us for a free showing of the short documentary film, "Strangers in Town," followed by a discussion and Q&A with Steve Lerner, the film's producer and co-director.

"Strangers in Town" tells the story of how global migration unexpectedly transformed and enriched Garden City, Kansas. It brought great challenges to the community, including demands for housing, social services, education, and infrastructure. For the current students at Garden City High School, the town’s remarkable diversity is all they’ve ever known.

Location and parking: The screening will be held in the Craig Auditorium in the GEB (General Education Building) on the Johnson County Community College campus at 12345 College Blvd. in Overland Park. Park in the Carlson Center parking lot and walk west and south to the GEB building. Look for the headless sculptures at the entrance of the GEB building. Take the stairs to the second floor or use the elevator in OCB (Office and Classroom Building), which is connected to the GEB. We will have signs and guides posted along the route to the building. Please allow about 10 minutes to get to Craig Auditorium after you park.
